Waukesha County personal injury attorney domestic violence

Individuals who are physically harmed by a romantic partner, family member, or household member may be left with serious injuries – both mental and physical. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may be caused by blows to the head, hitting one’s head on the ground, receiving a penetrating injury to the skull, and through other forms of physical trauma. If you sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of domestic violence, you should know that you have certain rights. You may be able to hold the alleged abusive person accountable for his or her actions criminally and civilly.

If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, you may need an attorney who can help you pursue compensation through a victimology claim in civil court.

How to Pursue a Civil Lawsuit Against an Abuser in Wisconsin

A victimology lawsuit is similar in some ways to a personal injury lawsuit you might file after a car accident. You will need to prepare evidence to demonstrate to the court that your injuries were caused by the actions of another person and that you have incurred significant damages and expenses as a result.

What is a Safety Plan?
